Baseline/Woodroffe Stormwater Management Pond

Municipal Class Environmental Assessment and Functional Design

January 9, 2017

6:30 pm to 8:30 pm – Presentation at 7:00 pm

Ben Franklin Place

101 Centrepointe Drive

The City of Ottawa has initiated a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) for a proposed stormwater management pond at the northeast corner of Baseline Road and Woodroffe Avenue. A stormwater management pond was initially recommended in the Pinecrest Creek/Westboro Stormwater Management Retrofit Study (2011) and underwent further assessment in the Feasibility Study for a Surface Stormwater Management Facility at Baseline Road and Woodroffe Avenue (2015).The proposed pond will provide water quality treatment and flow control for runoff from some 435 hectares that currently drain uncontrolled to Pinecrest Creek.

The study process is following the requirements of a Schedule B project under the Municipal Class and will identify a preferred alternative and functional design for the proposed pond.

At the meeting, a presentation will be provided covering the background to the project, existing conditions on the site, pond alternatives, and the preliminary preferred alternative. City staff and the study team will be on hand to answer questions and receive comments.
